Abstract

This paper describes a preliminary design study to assess the possibility of flying a wideband ionospheric sounder cubesat experiment (WISCER). WISCER comprises a wideband (∼100 MHz) beacon on a low cost cubesat designed to measure and evaluate the ionospheric channel in anticipation of the development of operational, space-based, low frequency (i.e. around 450MHz) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems.
